    Only got info on the Collectors Edition but worryingly there is a massive surcharge on the european price to the us price:

    US price $150 = 95

    Actual Pounds sterling price 120 = $205!

    Which is bullsh*t to be honest but I wouldn;t have bought them anyway.

    The normal pre-order price looks to be around $66 so that works out to be the usual 40+ we pay for a title here.

    Plus pre-orders get free weekend beta invites. :O

    I would!

    I don't mind paying over the odds for this. Everything about this looks amazing. It's the next evolution of MMORPG's.

    You're nearly 12 years younger than me, it probably doesn't look odd to have a 6 inch statue of a video game character in your life\room.

    However I will order the pre-order normal version on the 10th since it a non-subscription game even if it turns out to be monumentally disappointing (and most reviewers have been universally praising) it's no big loss.

    HOM = Hall of Monuments. (Records of all your acheivements in GW.

    In the original guild wars games, there are a number of titles that you can collect throughout the game, which when completed, get stored into the HOM. Titles such as: legendary vanquisher, completing all missions in each continent, taming and levelling a pet to level 20 etc

    The HOM on your GW account, will also be a feature in Guild Wars 2.

    The titles (like above) that you achieve in the original guild wars, allow you to unlock special items / weapons for Guild Wars 2.

    Really, you could buy GW Prophecies, Eye of the north, Factions and Nightfall, for under 15 now. I got the whole lot for 14.99.

    Once you’ve earned titles in GW, you can go to the HOM Calculator website, which lists your current achievements and you can also check to see, what nice perks you have unlocked for GW2, on the back of your GW accomplishments, listed in your HOM.

    So yeah, that’s the value of buying the original GW games.
